Read the following passage and answer the given questions.

Possibly Africa’s most famous ethnic group, the Maasai people are semi-nomadic people located primarily in Kenya and Northern Tanzania. They are considered to be part of the Nilotic family of African tribes, just like the Schilluk from sudan and the Acholi from Uganda.
According to their own oral history, the Maasai people originated in the Nile Valley in Northern Africa and migrated south around 15th century with their cattle. Why they did this is not known, however, history believe it was simply out of need for better grazing land. In their southward expansion, the Maasai found such land and satisfied their desire for more cattle by waging devastating warfare and continual cattle raids on other tribes. They quickly spread south through the Rift Valley when the fertile grasslands were ideal for their cattle and around the 18th century, reached the present-day territories in Kenya and Tanzania.
Once considered fierce warriors and feared by all tribes in the area, the Maasai lost much of that power in the 19th century. In tribe fighting was detrimental to the growth of the tribe as a whole, and contributed outbreaks of human and cattle disease, followed by severe droughts, decimated both the herds and population of the Maasai. As a result, the Maasai tribe lost lands they had already conquered, and when the British and German colonisers arrived, the Maasai were in no position to avoid colonial conquest and their lands diminished.
Nevertheless, the Maasai turned their backs upon the prizes and temptations offered by the West and despite education, civilization, and western cultural influences, they remained faithful to their ancestry and traditional of life, making them the strong symbol they are today of East African culture.

Read the following passage and answer the questions that follow:Under the harsh light of a naked blue bulb, the handloom weaver sits in a pit, craning his neck over a loom, manipulating a mass of threads. Slowly frame by frame, a paisley motif emerges on fuchsia pink silk, sourced from South India. Banaras silk is mentioned in the Rig Veda and Buddhist history texts, which, together with images from the Mughal court, provide clues to its evolution. Silk-embroidered sarees have been an art form during the Mughal period in the 16th century. 
To gain an insight into the intricate weaving process, a visit to the Mehta International Silk Centre helps. Here you can understand the intricacies of the process: difference between phenkua and kadhua: the technique of throwing the shuttle from end-to-end between the threads of the warp, and weaving in the threads, one by one. 
Three generations can wear an intricately woven Banarasi saree, and it is more a family heirloom that a mother passes on to her daughter or daughter-in-law. The complexity of design in a Banarasi saree is of the highest order —the highest pixels. 
The workers, mostly men, may take 10 days to weave a saree working eight hour shifts on wages as low as Rs 600 per day. If the design is complicated, then the saree may proceed at 2 inches a day and the weaver may even take three months to weave just one saree. Sarees may tell pictorial stories; the motifs on sarees are like a history book of influences —Persian and Mughal and Hindu culture. One can find motifs like asharfi (coin-shape), gainda (marigold flower), chand-tara (moon and star), lateefa (floral bouquet), etc.
